I thought the ad about the docking loop was useful, especially since I can make one up for about $5.00 and an hour's time! I'm going to give it a try, been using something similar for years to tie up to offshore rigs for snapper fishing. It never occured to me it could make it easier to snag a piling or dock cleat.

Didnít Trawlerforum try the advertisement before to help cover the cost, but there were so few hits they stopped the ads, so we donated funds to help cover some of the cost. Maybe if you do not click on the ads, they will give up and go away like they did before.

I still do not have/see any ads. I guess they know I am too cheap!

Phil, I think it was the other way around. Some members were clicking too much on the ads. Google knows where the clicks came from. So, they may have thought that clicks were intentional to build up count. Maybe they were. So, they pulled the ads. Such clicks interfere with their reports to their advertisers about number of clicks on their ads. Does anyone else remember this?

I still don't see the ads either and I have been looking for them.Some keep posting about this one loose girl's ad, showing up in their area, looking for dates.

I agree. Didn't mind the banner on top but this box makes the entire page look all messed up (on my iPad anyway). I understand the rationale and the need for income for a site like this but when the product becomes contaminated I just loose interest. I think the new owners should be careful with ads, they might just alienate a lot of users by filling the pages with commercial content.

If you are using the I-Pad download the app. I-Pad and Android app does not show the adds. If you load the webpage through either Safari or Google they show.

I use Safari for regular viewing or the app if I want to include a photo from the iPad. The ads don't bother me at all. I'm not distracted by them. I'm not even interested in $15,000 off on my next Bayliner....

Targeted ads

Notice the forklift and LP tanks. Glad it's not hair restorer or some other "revitalizer"!

I tried the App... for about 3 minutes. Didn't like the look and feel at all. But it's good to know I can upload a photo from it. Maybe I'll re-install it again just for those occasions when I want to share a picture.
